Mug Shot at the Folk Alley

Greetings from Baltimore. I’m heading “down the ocean” as we say here in the Land of Pleasant Living. I’m playing a few shows this weekend with my good friend, Troy Hanna. It’s always fun playing with Troy because I get to play a lot of banjo. I’m also excited because when I get back to B’more, I’ll get to open up a box from Amazon that has some tea in it. That’s something I’ll be needing for my “Mug Shots.”

Another Life Release

roots songs and tunes called Another Life. It’s been months of hard work
